About

Lausanne 2020 saw the Olympic spirit return to the home of the IOC, with over 1,800 young athletes competing in 81 events over two weeks. Most events took place in the area surrounding Lausanne, but St. Moritz, the city which hosted the 1928 and 1948 Olympic Winter Games, also welcomed some events.

In the streets... I’ve never seen anything like it, personally. I’m from Lausanne, and I’ve never seen that in Lausanne. That’s the effect that the Olympic Games and the Youth Olympic Games has.
